Okay heres my question......
It woulda been on march 22nd that I had sex 2 times and my boy friend finished in me (were trying to have a baby just so everyone knows heh) and than again on march 25th I was suppose to also get my period on march 25th and it didnt come until march 29th and was only 3 days and its usually last 5 days and it wasnt as heavy as it usually is and I was wondering how long it would take before it would show up on a test whether I was pregnant or not I took a test today and it came back negative :cry: :( but than I thought maybe it was to early to take it if someone could please help me out that would be awsome :)

Read the package directions for the pregnancy test. Some are more accurate earlier than others are. The instructions will tell you when to test and how accurate it is at that point.

You're probably fine, since you just finished your period. However, it is still possible. If you test this early, it probably won't be very accurate--you might get a false-negative. Your best bet is to wait and see if you miss your next period. Read the test's directions to see when it is most accurate. Some recommend waiting until a week after your missed period. If you want to test now, just for your peace of mind, that's fine, but if you miss your period, take another test.

This is a good opportunity to find a birth control method that's right for you. There are a lot of options, pills, shots, diaphragms, condoms, etc. Find a reliable method and stick with it and you won't have to worry like this anymore. Also, you need to protect yourself from STDs, even if you are in a committed relationship, unless you know for 100% certainty that you are both clean. There is nothing wrong with being on birth control pills and still using condoms.

It is WAY too early to test for pregnancy. Your body would have no idea if you were pregnant, because there likely hasn't been any implantation. You have to wait (as it says on the pregnancy test!) 10 to 14 days before your body produces enough hormones to trigger a pregnancy test. The later the better.

It isn't likely you ovulated that early in your cycle, so your pregnancy risk would be very low.
